Alien Body, 2019

100 x 70 cm

watercolour on paper

Like many artists, this author also got inspired by nature and reflect the world that she sees around her. The basis of creating these compositions are elements of mirror symmetry. Periodical repetition of fragments can create a unified impression of a surreal moment when the original shape turns into another more alien body, and there are endless variations of them. While painting she is trying to preserve different stages of the development of the art work – the subject (the artist) by analysing oneself turns into the object. This is how she wants to visualise the way of thinking itself and how the artist’s individual manner of applying paint develops into value which cannot be repeated. Paintings show the artist’s sensitive perception of the world and the fragility of the human soul.
